Janey in Buffalo, NY

Hello. My people call me Janey. I am ayoung tricolor female Cavalier born 10/02/2023. My former owner wanted the best for me. She was a nice lady but had health problems and couldn’t care for an active puppy like me. So, I’m looking for a new home.

I am very active and run fast. I love to run in the fenced back yard and explore non-stop. I have been going to nosework classes and the puzzles are really challenging. I always take a nap after them. Getting smart wears you out. I think I would have fun in any dog sport. I am a good teammate. I look forward to my daily walks but soaking up other activities also make me a happy camper.

I play with my foster brother and sisters. We all get along and they have shown me lots of stuff. A canine playmate would be great. I am fine with children. I have never been around cats.  

See me in action in the yard… Janey

I sleep all night in a crate. I am potty trained  but need to go out first thing in the morning and before bed. I bark when I need to go out in the day. I have to admit to a rare accident in the house; but rare. I’m in great health and weigh 15 lbs, which is a good weight for me.

I travel well on short and long trips in a crate or seat belt. I figure if I am good traveling, I will get to snuggle or explore or both when we get wherever we are going.

I will be happiest in a home with a fenced yard, someone with me a lot, and where I get to play a dog sport or have a job.

If you think you can provide me a great home, contact Michelle Farnum at cavalierrescueusany@gmail.com  and fill out an application online. I promise to be everything you want. Sincerely, Janey

Maple Syrup in Glenmoore, PA

Kayla, a girl so sweet that she earned the nickname Maple Syrup, is a 7 year old retired breeder from a farm in Lancaster County, PA.  Despite her former life, she arrived at her foster home super happy and social, and ready to start learning what it means to be a beloved house dog. 

Upon her initial exam, an arrhythmia was detected. While in rescue she saw a cardiologist for an echocardiogram and it was determined that no medications are needed at this time, but she should be monitored for any changes.

On her preanesthetic bloodwork for her spay, her ALT (one of her liver values), was mildly elevated. It was rechecked a month later and had elevated further, so an abdominal ultrasound was recommended. The ultrasound findings were normal, and she will be receiving a daily liver supplement, to help give her some support.  While she is currently asymptomatic, her adopter should have this value rechecked in a couple months with her new veterinarian, sooner if she would become ill. 

She was also treated for a bilateral ear infection and seasonal allergies upon intake. Her ears have improved, but they are still being treated and cleaning regularly.  Her itching has improved dramatically after receiving a long lasting anti-itch injection at the veterinarian, followed now by a daily antihistamine and weekly baths.

Maple Syrup had a dental while in rescue. She was already missing teeth had quite a few extractions so she only has 4 teeth remaining. But that doesn’t stop her from enjoying her dinner!

Her foster mom has gotten her down to a healthier weight with daily walks. It is important to keep Maple Syrup at a healthy weight. 

House training is coming along well. She gets taken outside every 2-3 hours during the day, and immediately after meals- just make sure to give her a small small treat once inside. Like many dogs, she isn’t thrilled to be out when the grass is wet, but she will still do her business. After being taken out late at night before bed, she will snore peacefully in her bed by her foster parent’s bed until morning, sometimes having to be woken up to start her day!

Maple Syrup gets very excited for her long daily walks, and doesn’t mind having her harness or leash on at all. Her sporty spanielness shines outside! Whether outside just to potty, or on a walk, if she spots a bird, butterfly, squirrel, or especially a rabbit, she wants to chase them all down. Her prey drive is strong- so a secure fenced in yard would be recommended for her.

She is around 3 respectful children in her foster home, the youngest being 5, and does great with them. She has not been around children younger than 5. She has also not been around cats. She loves walking up the road to get her foster brothers off the bus!

When she has been allowed to meet other friendly neighborhood dogs out on walks, she seems somewhat interested, but typically just sits submissively and lets them come to her to say hello.  She does seem to prefer calmer older dogs. She is much more excited to meet new people. 

While she loves being outside and is happiest on walks, the couch is her next favorite place to be, resting with her head on someone’s lap. If she’s awake, she’s the typical Velcro cavalier who will follow her foster mom from room to room, including the bathroom if she’s showering! 

She isn’t thrilled about being crated for a couple hours here and there when the family leaves, and will bark, but will typically be asleep upon their return. While they’re gone she usually has a little peanut butter in her Kong and music playing to help distract her. 

Sometimes she gets to go on car rides and she seems to enjoy them. Probably because she gets to be with her people! She is always excited to get in the car and settles quickly, laying down. She’s been to a few baseball games and enjoys watching them from her foster mom’s lap.

She really isn’t into the few toys she’s been introduced to. Sometimes she’ll go after one that’s a furry ball with a tail, which isn’t surprising! She would just really rather be sitting next to someone on the couch when inside versus playing. 

If your family is looking for an easy going gal with a love of the outdoors and exercise then Maple may be the right fit for you!

If you think you are a good match for Maple Syrup and live within a reasonable driving distance of Glenmoore, PA, please complete our online application if you haven’t already and then email Melissa MacMullin (cavalierrescueusapa@gmail.com) so she knows of your interest.

Benedict in Douglassville, PA

Dearest Gentle Reader,

When we last corresponded I was but a young pup, formally called Benedict, but affectionately called “Eggs Benedict,” or “Ben” to those who have a closer acquaintance. I am just over six months old, having been born December 4, 2023.

I was unable to make my way into society due to a deformity with my right forelimb, but had the good fortune to encounter a local resident of the town who introduced me to the kind members of Cavalier Rescue USA. They ensured that I saw a special physician who was able to successfully repair my elbow luxation with surgery.

The ensuing months were a bit of a bore for me, as I was forced to endure a splint on my leg and my activities were considerably limited! My devoted companion did take me in a canine carriage for a turn around the neighborhood, thus providing me with a respite from the doldrums of my restraint, and allowing me some much needed fresh air and new sights to enjoy.

But this author realizes that it was a small price to pay, as my time in confinement was just what I needed to properly heal. My amazing caretakers bestowed upon me a requirement for certain exercises that advanced my healing and provided strength and flexibility to my afflicted leg. I am now freed from restrictions, and can run and navigate stairs with ease.

I do have a bit of an underbite which allows me to be very handsome indeed, but does not diminish my ability to have a hearty appetite at tea time. It is also known that I have a grade three patellar luxation in my left hind limb. It is important that I maintain my trim figure and exercises to strengthen my limb should be continued, but alas …I may need to see a surgeon if it causes affliction in the future.

My current human companions have remarked that I still need to work on my good manners, but they must also recall that I am still youthful, and will require a bit of guidance in order to be a perfect gentleman in society.

It is now time for me to depart my current residence and find suitable quarters of my own. You may inquire as to what what this dashing, twelve-pound tricolor Cavalier requires for his new living arrangements. I enjoy rides in the horseless carriage and the presence of other canines for companionship. I attend to my “business” outdoors, as a proper Cavalier should. I thoroughly enjoy the company of humans, so I would be dissatisfied if I were left alone for extended periods of time.

If you think you can offer me the adventure and accommodations for which I seek, make haste! I implore you to complete an online application. Then, please do email Melissa MacMullin (cavalierrescueusapa@gmail.com) and inform her that you wish to be regarded as a possible family for me. Cheerio!

Oh, yes…. by all means, do have a peek at me frolicking about in the great outdoors: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yu5UJT5MaM0Online Application

 

 

Murphy in Queens, NY

Murphy is an approximately 10 year old male who was turned in as a stray, wandering the streets in NYC. He had been spray painted, had a severe skin infection, and painful untreated glaucoma. You’d never know it now, as he has fully recovered and embraced the good life! We don’t know his past, but we know he’s a super sweet senior looking for his forever soft landing.

This little muffuletta, as his foster family affectionately calls him, is a total sweetie! He is incredibly friendly and very much enjoys greeting strangers on the street. He especially enjoys interacting with other dogs (of any size!) on walks. His little tail is often wagging as he saunters on the sidewalk. He currently resides in an apartment and is used to walking three times a day. He doesn’t enjoy long walks in the morning or at night, but very much enjoys an afternoon walk. He would be happy in an apartment or a house. If his family has a yard, he would likely enjoy it with the opportunity to go for walks to fill his socialization meter. He is housebroken, and has no issues or accidents.

Murphy very much enjoys having a person, particularly a mom, who he can attach to. He enjoys sleeping in his foster family’s bed. He will sleep at the end of the bed and in the mornings, if it’s not too early, he will come cuddle up on your chest to wish you a good morning. He enjoys laying on the couch and generally prefers to be in the same room as his person. Sometimes this attachment transfers to anxiety behaviors, specifically barking. Once you are his person, he will bark when you return home, if you don’t pick him up, or if you go out of sight. He does not bark when left alone at home, rather it seems he barks to get your attention. He has struggled with demand barking for meals as well. His foster family has worked with a trainer and is willing to provide guidance to his forever home on how to manage. If you currently have dogs in your home that have a problem with barking, Murphy may not be a good addition as it may intensify his barking. Interested adopters should seriously consider and be prepared if they live in a townhouse or apartment where his barking would upset neighbors.

Murphy has adorable tendencies and a wonderful personality. He wants to rub all over you as his way of giving a hug and has a silly little smile. He currently lives with two other Cavaliers (female) and gets along with them very well. He has also been around (but not lived with) cats. On walks he will say hello to any dog, no matter the size. He does not appreciate very hyper dogs as much. He would also be okay if he was the only dog in your home. He is used to someone who is home most of the time, but does well spending a few hours alone. He does not play with toys but he really loves food games. He eats dinner using a toppl or licki mat and is very good at treat puzzles.

He had glaucoma in his right eye and it was removed in May. The eye had no vision, so he has adjusted very well. It does cause him some issue with depth perception so he has not been able to go down stairs. He can go up stairs, however. He currently receives eye drops twice a day in his left eye to try to avoid glaucoma in that eye. He must visit an ophthalmologist every 6 months to ensure the left eye pressure is safe. He happily and easily accepts his eye drops.

Murphy has a heart murmur and an echo confirmed he has MVD, currently at B1 with no medications. He will need to see a cardiologist in the fall, with visits likely every 6 to 12 months or as symptoms appear. He has a grade 4 luxating patella that causes his back leg to shake from instability but there is no maintenance needed. The source of his skin infection was unknown with no past history, however he has received cytopoint injections and may need additional to relieve allergies. He is a healthy weight, 18lbs, and completed a dental to remove rotten teeth. He currently eats a softer diet (Dr Harveys and homecooked).

Murphy is a sweetheart, who will love you intensely. He will bring joy and smiles to your home!

Remy in Dillsburg, PA

Remy is an approximately five year old male Blenheim Cavalier.

Before coming to rescue, Remy was used for breeding on a farm in Western Pennsylvania. Not much is known about his past. He has recently been neutered and recovered quickly.

Remy was timid at first, but has really warmed up and become a typical clingy Cavalier. He keeps tabs on his foster family, and doesn’t want to miss out on any snuggles, walks, or treats. He loves to meet neighbors on walks and is very friendly with people and other dogs.

The first thing you might notice about Remy is his tiny mohawk. His little tuft on his head makes him resemble a Kewpie Doll, which is fitting because he is a real life doll. He can be held like a baby on his back to have his belly brushed. He tolerates teeth brushing and nail clipping very well.

Remy is a healthy weight at 16.5 pounds and is a good eater. He is missing a few teeth, and takes his time chewing his food. His remaining teeth all look good.

Remy has two low grade luxating patellas, but he enjoys walks and uses pet stairs. He is not adventurous with running and jumping, so he should be able to enjoy regular activity for a long time.

He also has a heart murmur, and his diet should be supplemented with CoQ10 and an Omega 3, but no cardiac medications are needed at this time.

Remy adores his foster brothers, and would love to go to a home with other dogs with the same level of activity. He is a middle-aged boy, so daily walks are enough to wear him out. He will sleep all night in his crate, but should go outside every two hours during the day if not being crated. Remy is still perfecting potty training, but has shown improvement since his surgery.

This laidback boy deserves to have a peaceful home where he can provide companionship and love to his new family.

If you would like to potentially adopt Remy and you live within a reasonable driving distance of Dillsburg, PA, please complete our online application if you don’t already have one on file. Then email Melissa at cavalierrescueusapa@gmail.com so she knows of your interest.Online Application

Morning Glory in North Wales, PA

Here is Morning Glory with her new dads…

Morning Glory (Glory) is an approximately 6 year old female Blenheim Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. She is a retired breeding mom from Lancaster County who was not familiar with outside experiences. In the beginning she was quite afraid of new situations but quickly adapted. She is shy to begin with but has blossomed into a happyoutgoing, friendly and playful pup. She begs for attention and will snuggle and give you lots of kisses while cuddling. If you’re cooking in the kitchen she’ll be right there in a snap! She sleeps (snores) beside our bed in her special bed.

Glory is fine with other small dogs and mostly ignores them. She had not been with cats. She will alert to sounds outside and sounds on the TV. 

She doesn’t do well with car rides but is better on an empty tummy. She prefers not to be left alone, but if given a treat and left in our large gated bathroom and background music, we are able to slip out the door for a quick appointment, etc. We also recommend a quiet home where her human is home most of the time.

She enjoys meeting and greeting new people and is very fond of our gentle grandson. She is leash trained and enjoys several daily brisk walks. Glory loves to play in her own special way such as tearing up paper towel and toilet paper rolls. She has figured out how to open cupboard doors and needs supervision and enrichment toys to help with boredom. “Baby proofing” your home is a must as she is very curious and will investigate if something is left within her reach. We have found socks and other personal items snatched and brought to the living room which is often quite amusing especially when we remove them to their original location and wait for her to find them.

Glory is very good with the vet and has been spayed with 17 teeth extracted, and also micro-chippedShe is up to date on all her immunizations and weighs 20 pounds. She has had her heartworm medicine and flea and tick treatment. Initially she struggled with bathroom duties and only went one to two times a day. We have worked with her diet to help with tummy issues and she is doing much better while taking an antacid twice daily. She continues very well with her housetraining but needs a consistent schedule.

She has a minimal grade 2 heart murmur and rear luxating patellas both of which need no intervention at this time.

If you are interested in adding Morning Glory to your family and live within reasonable driving distance of North Wales PA let us know! Please complete the online application if you haven’t already, and then send an email to Melissa MacMullin at cavalierrescueusapa@gmail.com take ask to be considered as a family for Morning Glory.
